or porcelain laminates can be used to correct many different smile challenges. Enhancing teeth with porcelain or Zirconia can change your smile and your life. A dental veneer procedure can often be completed in two or more visits over the course of 7 to 14 days – depending on the number of veneers required. These are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored material designed to cover the front surface of teeth. Veneers improve the appearance of a tooth and are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. Each visit may require several hours of tooth preparation. The tooth is prepared by minimally reshaping it to provide the best fit. Removing a previous veneer and reshaping it may be needed for patients who wish to have their veneers changed. An impression of your teeth is taken using the Trios® handheld digital impression scanner. This impression will be sent to our in-house dental lab using the IPS E.max® System or the 3Shape® Zirconia System. The veneers are professionally fabricated through a CAD/CAM process. Veneers are not for every patient. There are certain limitations which we can discuss during your initial complimentary consultation.
HOW IS THE TREATMENT PERFORMED?
Once we determine a treatment plan, a series of appointments will be scheduled for you. It is important for you to keep all of these appointments to prevent any delays in treatment. On the first appointment, we complete a thorough oral examination, including an evaluation of your dental history. Any necessary x-rays are completed at this time.
During the restorative procedure, we carefully shape and contour the tooth or teeth to be veneered to allow the veneers sufficient space for proper fit and appearance. Finally, we make an impression of the area and fit the teeth involved with a temporary crown or bridge to protect them until your next appointment.
